lady of the flowers

this dress has been sitting in my closet for exactly one week and a day. that's a long time considering i usually cannot wait more than a day or two to wear something i recently bought. it was a lucky find at a thrift store, along with another beautiful dress i will share with you later. as soon as i saw the print on this one i knew i couldn't pass the opportunity to make it mine. plus it's a shirt dress, so double points for that. it was in quite good condition but i knew i would need to alter it a bit to fit me. it is actually several sizes bigger but the waist band once tied manages to hide that. i had the sleeves shortened a bit and i also took a couple of inches off the hem line. i was overwhelmed with excitement once i put it on. so far it's my favorite thrifted treasure, though it might not seem as great to you guys. i guess it's the way i feel wearing it. it's like i am transported to another era.

 dress: thrifted, vintage * tights: fiore * shoes: red lips

  1. Such a great dress! I'm the same exact way, I have to wear my new stuff right away, but lately I've collected a few pieces I haven't worn yet! What is going on?!
